    South West Rocks

    Didn't really know where to head today but after talking to another tourist at the campsite this morning we were given the idea of visiting this lovely part of the coast. Like all beaches along here they are lovely but rough undercurrents mean it is only really safe to swim in areas with lifeguards and between their flags. They are usually quite close together and can get quite busy, especially as it's a bank holiday weekend. Instead we went to the really interesting Trial Bay Gaol that was built by convicts so they could be based there in order to build a breakwater and safe harbour. It never got completed and the jail was not used again until the first world war as a prison for German civilians. Whike there we saw some Eastern Grey Kangaroos, one with a joey who kept popping its head out! More great views from the Smoky Cape Lighthouse (Captain Cook named it because of what he saw when he arrived).Read more
